Yes, trust the Japanese to release a phone that allows you to pay for things...with your eyes! NTT Docomo, a telecommunications company based in Japan unveiled a rather interesting phone called the Arrows NX, the first smartphone in the world that uses eye recognition.

NTT Docomo says the Arrows NX is the world's first smartphone to use iris recognition in conjunction with fingerprint authentication. Users will be able to unlock their phones and shop for things just by looking directly into the front-facing camera.

The phone's built in camera is able to solve complex iris patterns. It is also a very secure payment method because everyone's iris is different.

While the iris recognition is cool, Arrows NX is just another Android with a 5.2 inch screen, octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The phone runs on Android 5.0.
